Pause Button

Do you wish you could hit a pause button and feel all the aggravations of the world disappear ? Like the Buhdist Monk that meditates in a trance of beauty. No more violence on the television screen. No neighbors who wish to upset your apple cart.

I found this in Costa Rica. I watch no television other than Netflix on my Apple TV. This poem from “Poems From Costa Rica” expresses my feelings.

Hidden Away

I am hidden away from the fray

Deep in the rainforest faraway

No news to make me dismayed

Disgruntled or ashamed

Enjoying the fresh air

Enjoying the life style of devil may care

Absent is the need to

Relaxing a must do

I am among friendly faces

In simpler times and places

Few distraction to annoy

Nature to enjoy

I awake to singing birds

Low clouds and swaying ferns

Wild breezes that keep me cool

Gecko’s chirping their tune

Fall asleep to croaking frogs

Winds like sirens through the fog

Rains that pound the metal roof

Then silence, it’ a hoot!

Few trucks, cars or loud noises

No blasting radios to annoy

Welcome to Lake Arenal and the Living Forest


“Pura Vida” is the chorus”

The Good Life

Would you like to hit the pause button? Read my book and feel the urge to meditate.
